Memphis CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
Have you ever noticed that your key doesn't seem to fit quite right into your car door lock or ignition? One reason for this is that the teeth no longer matches up perfectly with the parts of the lock that should open and close after you insert the key. This can occur due to corrosion, dirt, dust, and just normal wear. The more severe the wear, the greater the likelihood that you won't be able to open or start your car. As soon as it starts to be a struggle, it's a good idea to contact a professional locksmith for repair or replacement. This can prevent you from becoming stranded when you can't start your car or getting locked out of it entirely.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the procedure for replacing my car keys?
You have three options for car key replacement. The first one, which we don't recommend, is to bring your keys to a local dealership and request that they create a new set of keys. Although this should be easy for them to do, it could be quite costly for you. Dealerships sometimes charge a lot of money simply because they know people are desperate and they can.
The second option you can explore is to try to replace your own car keys. This will cost you the least, but it's important that you know exactly what you are doing to avoid wasting time and effort.
Your final option, and the one that we highly recommend, is to contact us and request that we dispatch a mobile locksmith technician to your current location. Upon arrival, he or she will create a replacement set of keys for you. This costs a bit more than attempting the job yourself and not as much as going to a dealership. You have the added bonus of knowing that we guarantee our work.
What are the benefits to working with a professional locksmith for key replacement?
Buying parts to create replacement keys from an unknown seller is always a risk. You have no guarantee as to the authenticity or quality of the parts. When you work with us, you know that we back both our products and workmanship. Saving money by not having to go to a dealership is another big advantage.
Will I need to provide you with my original key to get a replacement?
Although this isn't necessary, it is helpful to make the key creation process go faster. However, we can duplicate your car key even if we are unable to look for a code on your original key. If you use a fob or keys without any type of metal blades, producing it does little more than prove you legitimately own the vehicle.
What if my original key is too damaged or I lost it?
You don't need to feel concerned about receiving a replacement car key if you no longer have the original. Thanks to advances in technology, locksmiths no longer need to have a physical copy of the key that requires replacement. An employee simply needs to verify that you own the vehicle. Once we do that, we can use your unique vehicle identification number to create a key for your vehicle.
Replacing your car key after you have had it extracted
If you discover that you have broken off part of your key in one of your car's locks or its ignition, we urge you not to try to extract it on your own. When people without the proper equipment or training attempt to do this, it can cause additional damage to the key, lock, or ignition. There's even a chance that a professional locksmith could cause some damage when trying to extract a key. However, you can depend on the skilled crew not to do this. We operate very carefully to ensure that we only extract the key and do not harm anything else.
With all the options available to you, working with a professional auto locksmith technician is the way to go. We require each of our service employees to complete ongoing education to make sure that they can work with keys for any make or model of vehicle. This is especially important since so many of the newer cars today use electronic fob or transponder systems rather than manual keys.
We can even repair your lock or key if another locksmith company caused the damage. Although fixing it at no charge is the right thing to do, not everyone shares the same values. You could end up frustrated and wasting a lot of time arguing with a locksmith to do this. Calling us can save you both time and money rather than hoping that another company will relent and fix their damage without charging you for it.
